20 Nov Best Practices for Mowing Your Lawn Turf
Proper maintenance is necessary for the lush and healthy growth of your instant turf. Part of maintaining the lawn’s health and appearance is by mowing. Regular mowing helps to not only keep your lawn looking neat but also to prevent problems like weeds from sprouting.
Here are some tips to help you mow your instant lawn properly.
Choose the right lawnmower
As with any other job, you can’t start unless you have the right tools. The same rule applies for mowing. Your mowing technique is as important as the lawnmower you use, so make sure you choose well.
A reel lawn mower works best for smaller lawns, since its compact size increases its maneuverability. It’s also quieter than other models, so you won’t have to worry about disturbing the entire neighbourhood. On the other hand, use a rotary mower for best results when mowing taller grass.
Keep the mower blade sharp
Regardless of the type of lawnmower, it’s incredibly important that you keep its blade sharp to ensure optimal results. Dull blades can scalp your lawn and damage it, resulting in jagged edges in the grass which increases the risk of diseases. A sharp blade makes the process quicker and easier and ensures a more attractive and effective result.
Clear debris off the lawn
Before proceeding, make sure there is no debris littering the lawn. Rocks, branches and other such materials can get stuck in your lawnmower. Not only can it damage the lawn mower but it can injure you too!
Do research about your lawn grass variety
Various grass types have different mowing height requirements. You can check with your supplier what the appropriate mowing height of your lawn is. Once you have this information, you can adjust your lawnmower accordingly; it should have a lever on the side that allows you to change the height.
